The Cheapest and Most Effective Way To Promote Your Website

Jul 31, 2008
One way of increasing traffic your website is through promotion of well written articles. Articles that promote websites, products or services are widely acceptable and in fact getting popular as a tool to drive up website traffic. Many internet users are constantly on the lookout for information to increase knowledge in their areas of interest. Hence, well written articles are in demand. An excellent way of keeping your website updated and current is through article marketing. Articles that provide the latest information about your company and its products can serve as an important way of creating inward links to your website.

Article marketing is done through the posting of keyword-focused articles on article sites that then syndicate your content. Some of these article syndication sites have a significant readership following thus making article marketing an important website promotion technique.

Most article syndication sites allow you to post your content for free. Once published, your content becomes available for all to see - and potentially reuse. When properly done, articles posted on syndicated article sites can then become "link bait" for other sites. For example, you own a home business that sells closet organizers. If you or your web content writer write an article about organizing office, others who may want to post a blog entry about how to organize an office may link to your article. In this way, you can get increased exposure for your writing and your subject matter, especially if the article site gets a great deal more traffic than your own website, which is fairly likely.

Some article sites allow you to include HTML links in your articles. You can then link your keyword phrase to the page on your website you are trying to promote for that keyword - a highly effective search engine optimization technique. Some others do not allow you to do that, but they will have no objections with you including links in your resource box (your profile or signature information used to let people know who you are), which adds important one-way backlinks to your website.

Article syndication sites also typically allow readers to conditionally include your article on their site. Conditions typically include the requirement that whoever reuses your article must cite you as the author and must retain any links in the article. As you can imagine, this will certainly provide additional opportunities to increase your site traffic and also get the buzz out about your article. Even if you have to pay to have the article ghost written for you, it is fairly inexpensive to have a good article written by a knowledgeable ghost writer and you still get the credit! Therefore, article marketing can be a very cost effective means of website promotion for your home business.
